The Secret to Getting Your Beauty Sleep

We all know how vital getting a good night’s sleep is for overall health and well-being. But what happens to our skin when we get much-needed shuteye?

Just like the rest of our body, each night when we get our beauty sleep, our skin undergoes a series of processes to repair, strengthen and energise itself. As we sleep our skin’s cell production speeds up, metabolic waste is shed and damage is repaired. Because nighttime plays a crucial role in keeping our complexion healthy and radiant, it’s important to make sure that your nightly skincare routine is providing your skin with what it needs to rejuvenate overnight.

While there are a plethora of creams and serums promising to erase the signs of ageing as we sleep, natural beauty house Dr. Hauschka takes a unique approach to nighttime skincare. Environmental aggressors, such as UV rays, wind and pollution, are only an issue during the day which is why Dr. Hauschka believes in keeping the skin free from oils and moisturisers so the natural repair process can do its job properly. While your skin needs protection and nourishment from a thorough skincare routine during the day, Dr. Hauschka believes that at night our skin needs something different to support the natural process.

Dr. Hauschka’s gentle nightly routine involves three steps: a gentle cleansing, toning to stimulate the skin followed by Dr. Hauschka Night Serum. Rather than weigh skin down, the lightweight, oil-free serum assists with the renewal process while you sleep. Formulated with powerful botanicals including rose apple blossom and fruit extracts, the Night Serum enhances moisture levels and boosts the skin’s natural activity, while vitamins A and C help to regenerate and repair so you wake with a smooth, radiant complexion.
